Stage 7 – 2010 Tour de France – Standings

July 11, 2010

Stage 7 DIDN’T bring the shakeup I expected and we’re looking down the barrel of Stage 8 – the last stage before the first rest day – to jumble the entire GC. In fact, Stage 7 saw a good break and a tiny shuffle, but nothing dramatic. Even with the mountains.

Here’s how it wrapped up.

Top Five in the Stage…

Sylvain Chavanel – Quick Step (by the way, he rode great today and knocked Fabian Cancellara out of the water!
Rafael Valls Ferri – Footon-Servello
Juan Manuel Garate – Rabobank
Thomas Voeckler – BBox
Mathieu Perget – Caisse d’Epargne

That meant that the top five overall got a shakeup too.

Here is the GC – Top Five…

Sylvain Chavanel – Quick Step
Cadel Evans – BMC
Ryder Hesjedal – Garmin
Andy Schleck – Saxo Bank
Alexandre Vinokourov – Astana

Here comes Stage 8 and THE shakeup.
